"This engrossing film, directed by Pare Lorentz depicts the Nuremberg trial of Third Reich leaders and recounts the crimes they were accused of. It was one of the first films about the trial, for it was originally made by the US Government in 1946 to be shown to Germans, and then appeared in this English-language version in 1949 on American television. Film footage and documents reveal the Nazi leaders' grab for power, German military invasions, and the horrors of German crimes against soldiers and civilians. We see and hear men like Göring, Keitel, and von Ribbentrop as they defend themselves before the World."--Container
